Two chicks with a dream to be skinny - Bootcamp Zulu Muscat

Since arriving in Muscat 7 weeks ago my diet and exersize has completely gone out the window and I feel like a big lazy slug! Life here is pretty relaxed so it is easy to become complacent and lazy.

        It is time to get some discipline back in my life!

This morning me and my new BFF Eliza embarked on a new challenge - To be super buff and skinny... Or just roll round in the sand and tone up a bit...

If you have never tried a boot camp fitness programme here is the description:
“Boot camp training is based on a military concept. It is the basic training given to cadets to make them fit and strong. It involves a lot of running and exercise and is considered a great way to become super fit."

The challenge is to exersize on the beach for an hour, three times a week for 6 weeks under the watchful eye of an ex military man, Adrian. He will push us and literally pull us as far as we can go!

                       Basically my plan is in 18 classes I'll be toned and fit, yeahhhh :-D

In my quest to be thin I invested in new runners and Nike'd myself from head to toe, somehow thinking that this was going to help me... I was wrong.

This was us at 7.30am this morning on Shatti beach and ready to go as part of the "Desperate Housewives group", we didn't know what we were about to let ourselves in for!!

OH MY was tough... After sprints, weights, sit ups, core exersizes and squats we were deflated and moaning about the sweat in our eyes and sand in our ears. 30 degrees and running on the beach like a loon is hard work. 
The final workouts were running with high knees in the sea and believe me it was so nice to get in the water, even if it was for more exercising!

This was us after our first class. Shattered, sweaty and totally covered in sand!! Totally gross but it was alot of fun.

Hopefully in six weeks I will be telling you how great it was and that we are fit and toned, I'll keep you updated......
